ornate designs to tradi tional Dia de los Muertos flowers They then helped chil dren who visited the museum work on their own projects related to the holiday Our students jumped at the opportunity to help said Gloria Cantu sponsor of the Spanish Club The kids were just so excit ed This kind of thing really broadens their awareness and its a way to close the culture gap for so many of these El Dia de los Muertos is a tradition dating back 500 years to the time of the Aztecs It involves honoring and remembering ances tors so the ancestors dont forget to honor and remember you Cantu said The idea is not to fear skeletons and signs of death because in the Mexican culture death is really just considered part of the life said Cantu Its a transition from one phase of life to r The Childrens Museum
